I had two issues 1) I read through all the reviews and it seemed highly recommended to order a size larger. I wear an 8.5 normally and decided to order a 9. They were definitely too big. Not too big to live with, possibly, but if I had been in a store setting, I would have gotten a smaller size. 2) The quality of the boots was really disappointing. They don't seem to be constructed very well. The top of the sole (the area that shows around the edge when you look down at your feet) is missing paint/coloring, there is at least one section where the leather seems to have a silver patch at the seam? The nylon stretch material seems to have "slubs" or maybe glue bits on it. The boots in general seemed poor quality for the price and the Michael-Michael Kors name. They did look really great on and fit my 14.5 wide calves perfectly and just came to my knees, I'm 5' 7". I really like these boots, I just don't feel like they are worth the price for the quality. I would have been "fine" with paying less for them.

Love these boots. I get a lot of compliments on them. But the leather started peeling on them! I ran into a girl wearing the same boots and the leather was peeling in the same exact spot. I'm returning them and Zappos was great about it. It's too bad because I love them otherwise!

Additional 45 Bromley Flat Boot MICHAEL Michael Kors Reviews
These are beautiful boots that look even better than the pictures show. I had been looking for replacement flat boots for a while and these fit the bill perfectly. The fit on the calves is slim but there is some stretch. Love the zippers to help pull them on.
Beautiful boots, they look and feel top quality. The spandex back of the boot allows them to fit snugly to your calf. I have narrow heels and these were perfect as I did not feel my foot slipping in them. I purchased a very similar look from a local store for less than half this price, however I am much happier with these. You get what you pay for!
I'm thin and have a very narrow, flat foot. This boot is adorable, but for me...it is still a bit too big on the ankle part of my foot. The leg part is great, perfect fit, nice and snug without being uncomfy. However, because of my weird feet, I think I'm going to have to return them. I'm sure they'd be perfect for most people.
Absolutely fabulous! I have eyed these boots since last season and was very excited to see them return this year. I am 5'9" and have large calves, which is why it is so nice to find boots that have flexibility but don't look cheap. I have worn these with leggings, jeans, and an array of skirts and dresses. Most I have spent on boots, but well worth it!
Love these boots. Got them in brown, the gold zipper dresses them up a bit so I can wear them to work. They are super comfortable, and easy to walk around the city in. I'm 5’10” and a runner so I always struggle to find boots to fit my calves; these are perfect with tights, leggings, and jeans. I'm usually an 11 and found they were true to size.
I just bought these boots and I love them! I read other reviews and the neg ones are wrong! I have slim legs and love the way these fit. They are really comfortable and every day I wear them they get more comfortable. The leather is a very soft and I really like the stretch fabric in the back. I receive so many compliments on these boots.
I really love this boot. It's sleek and dressy, while still being casual. It felt true to size. I have larger calves, and sometimes have problems finding boots that fully zip up all the way. Because of the stretchy material in the back, the boot zips all the way and makes your legs look very thin! I would like boots that were full leather all the way around, but then you run into the problem of them not zipping up or bunching around the ankle. These fit great!
Overall a nice boot for the price. Softer leather allows for the boot to stretch just a bit. Zipper adds bit of flare without making the boot seem to casual for skirt or dress on business casual day. I'm 5'9" and found it difficult to find a riding boot that hit closer to my knees - this pair fit that need perfectly.
I love these boots they are really chic. They are also very fitted, which is what I wanted. However, my calves are by no means fat or muscled, so I think that unless you have pretty thin calves, these will not work. The other thing is that they are very difficult to get on if you have high arches. I loved them so I was determined to make them work but was on the verge of sending them back because I simply could not get my right foot into it due to the angle. I then tried with a shoe horn and it was fine. The foot fits fine it is just the entry angle.
It took me a little while to decide if I liked these or not - I've decided I do. They definitely don't look cheap - the shiny gold zipper and the good shade of brown help with that. It feels like I could potentially get blisters where the leather part meets the elastic at the ankle, but haven't worn them out yet. True to size, but if you want to wear thick socks, order a half size up.
These boots are really cute. They\x5c're a different take on riding boots. I like the fact that the back is stretch because they won\x5c't get stretched out and slouch, and I have slightly bigger calves. They are cut a little small. I got a 9 (I usually wear a 9.5) and I wish I got a 10. Other than that I\x5c'm happy.
These boots look nice, but I don't think they are good quality. I sent them back. They are not real leather, and not good faux leather - I could tell it would start scuffing immediately. The foot is also very difficult to get on, even with a shoe-horn. Just splurge and get better quality boots, it will be worth it.
I just finished zipping up these boots and it took me a good 15 minutes. The insides of my two index fingers are swollen red and calloused from struggling to zip the zipper up. I do not have wide calves. However, these boots have barely any stretch to them at all I don't know why the "stretchy" material in the back doesn't give a little more! I don't know how you ladies got into these boots comfortably. My only hope is that they will stretch, because they look fabulous. They are just a huge struggle to get on.
